This is evolution by design. Our trust, expertise and success were born from the cyber battles we fought — and won — as FireHost. Today, that passion lives on under a new banner. Learn more about the evolution.

We respect personal property, privacy and the regulations designed to protect them — so we prevent them from being violated. We’re vigorously trained, highly motivated and relentless as hell. Spoiling the plans of those who want what isn’t theirs? Oh, yes, with pleasure. We’re forever between you and the threat.

Security is Our Mission

Armor exists to protect. Each employee feels our passion, knows the vision and lives the company values. Diversity is key. Everyone on the team learns right away that their role is important to Armor’s success. We volunteer our best every day and go to any length to ensure our customers are protected. There are no short cuts. And “good enough” service is never enough. Simply put, we want customers to rave about their experience with us.
